People choose to wear contact lenses for many different reasons. For some, contact lenses replace their spectacles for everyday wear, whilst others enjoy the flexibility of wearing contact lenses some of the time, e.g. for sport, socially or on holiday.

Recent years have seen great improvements in contact lens design. With the development of new contact lens materials and designs we are improving the fit and comfort of contact lenses all the time. With the advent of daily disposable, astigmatic and multifocal contact lenses, there is now a lens to suit almost every wearer whether it is disposable, re-usable or a specially designed bespoke lens.
Thinking of starting to wear contact lenses?
The first step is to find out about the type of lens that may be suitable for you. This depends on many factors including:
• Your prescription
• How often you want to wear your lenses
• Your occupation and work environment
• Your tear film and eye sensitivity
First of all, we’ll do a full eye examination to find your prescription and to check that your eyes are healthy, followed by a specific contact lens fitting. During the fitting, you will wear diagnostic contact lenses to check your suitability for contact lens wear. Further checks of your eyes and tear film help to assess the most suitable type of lens for your personal needs.
At Care Optics, you are not committed to purchase lenses at your initial visit - if you decide lenses are not for you, you will simply pay for your eye examination and the initial fitting fee. However, if you get on well at the initial fitting, we will teach you how to handle and care for the lenses, so that you can take some home to try. After a follow-up appointment, a few days later, we can then go ahead and order lenses.
